This week weâre dealing with a litany of deaths in the film world, as two actors, a screenwriter, and a producer all passed away, plus we dust off the cobwebs for a lengthy Red Light District. The weekâs reviews include James McTeigueâs secret service drama âSurvivor,â the latest collaboration between Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy, âSpy,â and Chinese Golden Bear winner âBlack Coal Thin Iceâ (again). Meanwhile, Helen Mirrenâs won yet another award for playing the Queen, there are rumblings of discontent about Joseph Gordon-Levittâs attempt at a French accent, and Calâs drunken encounter with a singer is contradicted by his love of Judy Garland.
The week's news:
Helen Mirren wins a TONY
The death of Sir Christopher Lee
The death of Ron Moody
